The Academy of Philosophy and Letters will be holding its annual meeting in Baltimore from June 15-17. The theme this year is “Globalization and the Fragmenting of America: The Problem of Disconnectedness” – an important theme that will resonate with the sensibilities of many Porchers. Keynote speakers are R.R. Reno and Rod Dreher, and panelists will include Mark Mitchell and myself, as well as many other interesting and well-known speakers. Attendance is by invitation only, so interested parties should contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
